Naughright Road Brush Fire

Last night, Long Valley Fire was dispatched to Naughright Road for a brush fire behind a residence. Chief 1 was first to arrive and advised of an active fire in the woods and requested for the NJ State Forest Fire Service (NJFFS) to respond. Because of the rapid growth of the fire, Chief 1 also requested for Schooleys Mtn and Fairmount to respond. Engine 1-1 arrived on scene shortly after and stretched over 500 feet of hose to reach the fire. NJFFS was able to gain access to the fire and both crews worked to contain the fire to about half an acre. Tender 2-7 arrived second due and supplied Engine 1-1 with water. All companies worked on scene for about 90 minutes until clearing the scene. Long Valley EMS also assisted at the scene with rehab.
